Keywords:

Predictive, Analytics, Manufacturing

Industry:

Chemical

Level:

Advanced

Tate & Lyle deploys CI programs through its Global Operations Network. We have made significant progress over the last 2 years integrating Minitab products which include Minitab, SPM, Companion and Quality Trainer. The speaker, Adam Russell, is a seasoned Master Black Belt and a degreed Chemical Engineer with 20 years experience leading, training, and coaching process improvements using Minitab products for continuous and batch manufacturing processes. Recently, Tate & Lyle launched a major quality improvement project for one of its product lines. For years, attainment of consistent quality and previous efforts to control variation were sporadic until a DMAIC project team was formed. Efforts progressed through a Gage R&R to validate the measurement system, but the big breakthrough came when the team reached out to Minitab and acquired SPM to supplement its data analysis efforts. SPM offered the team the ability to model variation in the response against several thousand predictor variables and reduce the set of predictors to the vital few. The team documented the journey in Companion, which has become our primary documentation tool for CI projects. Through this presentation, participants will be able to connect SPM to their Data Analysis projects, refine on important predictors, and propose rational models.
